The election, that is. Please, this is not a political post, and if you feel led to comment let’s keep the politics out of them. It’s just that I’m so tired of having to listen to all the rhetoric on television, the phone calls, and the general us versus them mindset that has been created by all the “media”.
Did I vote? Yes. Did my guy win? No. Am I surprised? No. Will I dwell upon for the next four years? No.
Before we started traveling the Country, I assumed most everyone “like” us; that being Caucasian, blue collar, Christian, retired, traveling with an RV, etc.; had the same philosophies as I did. Was I ever wrong.
You see, it goes back to our little worlds we live in daily. We have a group of folks that we circulate within. We attend the same church’s, our kids attend the same schools, we have similar jobs within the community, and we mostly had the same upbringing. Our philosophies, which were formed by the time we reached adulthood, are mostly the same.
It’s when you get out of your circle, in a different part of the Country, for instance, that you find that there can be someone just “like” you with a completely different philosophy. This was brought to my attention at a campground in rural Texas, of all places.
The votes speak for themselves. Apparently a majority of American voters have a different philosophy than I do at the present time. That may change in the next four years, but for that period of time we will continue with the present administration. He’s America’s President, which makes him my President.
Whatever our leanings, I think there is one thing we could all agree on. May we all pray that He and our other leaders receive the wisdom to do what is best for America.
On a lighter note, there’s not much happening around home that’s blog worthy. There probably won’t be many posts for a while. Things will pick up when we once again hit the road…jc
